  9. I would hope this late in the run they would have been averse to making any cast changes, but particularly the main three. I think of other shows which made cast changes late in the game like That '70s Show and Scrubs to make another season. While it may seem pleasing beforehand to know you're going to get more episodes, I think you end up looking back at two different shows: the show as it was and then an unnecessary addendum. An addition that in your mind separates from the show you loved. Not to pick on Scrubs, but in my mind there eight seasons and then something else - worth watching when it aired, but quickly forgotten and not worth revisiting. I totally understand the feeling that more episodes, no matter what, are better than facing the impending end. But I think any changes made to the show at this point would just become a disappointing footnote. We'd get a Season 13 but with an asterisk by its name. A couple of years later, when the end still inevitably arrived, would it have been worth it? Clearly we don't know what the response would have been if a different actor had called time, but I would like to believe it would have been the same. I would hope they felt limping to the finish line with an altered cast is not the way to go out. I can't say I understand the hostility toward an actor for reportedly wanting to stop after twelve years, a tremendous length of time, when continuing would have been the easy thing to do. Why not take the money and just show up? When somebody chooses not to, I think it's worthy of respect even if you're disappointed. I think the same applies to deciding not to retool the show to keep it going at all costs.

    Young Sheldon: Season 1 DVD

    The Blu-ray is now available to pre-order from Amazon.com for the (in my view) very reasonable price of $24.99. Right now it's cheaper than the DVD. Even if you're only on the fence about getting the Blu-ray, I'd order now and try lock in this price. https://www.amazon.com/Young-Sheldon-The-Complete-First-Season-Blu-ray/dp/B07GK3XW4N/ref=as_li_ss_tl?SubscriptionId=AKIAIY4YSQJMFDJATNBA&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&linkCode=ll1&tag=ysheldon-20&linkId=169eeb816cb4c8bfb31f3c24c4c1e4cd
